Lost to the West by Lars Brownworth

This book narrates the history of the Byzantine Empire, which grew and prospered despite turmoil for a thousand years.

The first three centuries AD were a time of great prosperity for the Roman Empire. Roman architects, engineers and soldiers could be found all over the continent, establishing order wherever they went. Roads were well connected to the marketplaces, and cities were bustling with facilities such as arenas and public baths connected by roads.

By the third century, rebels and mobs sprung up in various locations to overthrow the emperor's rule. The roads that were supposed to symbolize the prosperity of the Roman Empire were utilized by the insurgents as a tool for the empires downfall, contributing to 28 changes in the imperial power in just 80 years.

Unfortunately, none of the 28 emperors were wise. Instead of bringing peace for which the people longed, each monarch sought personal gain, looking for reasons to levy taxes. Increasingly, stringent fiscal policies brought the Roman Empire's economy to its complete collapse, and society was in turmoil due to never-ending conflicts. The hopeless populace began to look for spiritual support by seeking refuge in religion.
